The island of Malta has changed its mind about forcing Prince George to return his new gift from David Attenborough.

On Saturday, Kensington Palace announced that the famous naturalist had gifted the young royal a giant shark tooth during a private screening of his latest environmental documentary A Life On Our Planet for the royal family. The fossil once belonged to a megalodon, an extinct species of shark and is estimated to be approximately 23 million years old. During a family holiday to Malta in the late 1960s, Attenborough found the tooth in soft yellow limestone.

In response to this announcement, Malta Culture Minister Jose Herrera initially stated that the shark tooth should be returned to the country so that it can be displayed in its natural history museum. “There are some artifacts that are important for Maltese natural heritage and which ended up abroad and deserve to be returned,” told he. “We given a great deal of attention to historical and artistic artifacts. For our natural history it is not always the case. I am determined to influence a change in this attitude.” Malta was a British colony until 1964

But the government of the country hacked back on this plan on Tuesday. A ministry spokesperson told, “Further to the initial remarks as reported in the Malta Press, Minister Herrera would like to reiterate that no action was taken or will be taken on the issue”
